I have changed some features on the blog so it will load faster. You might notice some of the slideshows and ads are gone. My tests show this cuts load time to under 10 seconds on at least the three computers I tried it on. It loads faster on Firefox than IE or AOL's browsers. If all this fails I recommend using an RSS reader, like Google Reader and you will see all new posts with no extra load time.
If you miss the dynamic display slide show or the switch slide show you can view them in Picasa.
